YouTube removes 16-month old video about biohackers searching for coronavirus vaccine that was uploaded by libertarian digital news outlet Reason: ReasonTV, Reason Magazine's video production arm, had one of its videos from March 2020 deleted by YouTube. The video, titled "Biohackers Are on a Secret Hunt for the Coronavirus Vaccine," purportedly violated YouTube's medical misinformation policy. "Speaking as the journalist who produced it: absolutely not," wrote Zach Weissmueller, firing back against the platform's accusations it was misinformation. "While YouTube, as a private company, is within its rights to decide what to carry, the decision to remove this video illustrates a disturbing, censorious trend that has accelerated in the age of COVID." ReasonTV's appeal to have the video reinstated was denied.
